News that a striker reneged on a verbal commitment to join the club 24 hours before deadline day should surprise no one. Think back to that line from Jerry Maguire, when Jerry’s girlfriend hears he had secured a representative deal on a handshake, not an actual contract. The agent’s reminder of Lesson One in business was sharp.
Last minute change of plans happen, but only when you’re doing last minute business. We are now 10 hours away from the deadline and in desperate need for what we’ve been in desperate need…. to replace the long departed Gary Hooper. It would be wrong to think that Scepovic was the only striker we were pursuing, so we’re not starting from scratch, but he was first choice.
The ball is still in play, not panicking yet.[calameo code=000390171586f6fbaa2ba lang=en page=122 hidelinks=1 width=100% height=500]
